5:06 pm
unwilling to raise income taxes on upper income earners but he left open this possibility of perhaps revising the tax code to raise the revenue. >> that's right. and what republicans want to do is say, look, put everything off until next year. we'll overhaul the entire tax code and through efficiencies and economic growth you get more revenue out of that. that doesn't go far enough for democrats. they want a true, honest tax increase on families earning more than $250,000 a year. so you have your open negotiations. tax reform on one side from republicans and that 250 number from democrats. that's the start. now they talk. >> all right. rich edison with the fox business network. thanks for weighing in tonight talking to a step further for us. a new video released by the obama campaign shows the president wiping away tears as he thanks members of his campaign staff and volunteers. take a look. >> what you guys have done. i

5:46 pm
convinced me to do it. but it's a strange one. you can't get too involved. >> reporter: i read an interesting article recently about -- you know, i thought it was perfect. is didn't harm the story at all one bit. as an actor, when does product placement become a problem in films? >> i think when you are are building the scene around it. but i just won't allow that to happen because i think it's a waste of time. but, you know, i'm very kind of aware of heineken and aing me owe and all the other people i could mention rapidly gave us a lot of money to make this movie. we can't turn that down you know. and it's trying to do it as subtly as we can. >> this has been one. greatest franchises of all time, the longest running franchise. 23 films. hypothetically, if one of your characters that you have played in your past could be fleshed over 23 movies, what would be

5:49 pm
superstorm sandy as well as the nor'easter that just moved up the coast. then you end up with this nice high pressure building in. so it will be warm this weekend relatively speaking. probably as much as 6, 7, 8 degrees above not. and that would be upper 60s. probably a few lower 70s out there as well. and it looks like we are going to have tons of sunshine. 64 tomorrow. 68 on sunday. listen, it's still going to be chilly overnight tonight and early in the morning hours. we are going to warm up quite nicely. 54 now. high temperature today managed up to 58 degrees. and once those winds settled down and a high pressure really started building in, it was just fabulous out there. a little cooler already back out to the north and west where the western suburbs are already drops into the 40s. clear at 7:00. 51 degrees. clear at 9:00. 47 degrees. you get the theme here? clear at 11:00, 45 degrees.
5:50 pm
all the clouds staying to the north of us. there was a thought that a couple of these clouds may get far enough to the south to bring us a few clouds overnight tonight. but i don't think that's going to happen. again, high pressure is building in and it looks like high pressure is building in all the way up to the midwest. and so what that will do is protect us from some of these clouds that you see through the midwest. i don't think it's going to become completely 100% sunny tomorrow or as we head on into sunday. i still think we will have more sun than we will clouds and any clouds we have for the most part look like they are going to be high to mid level clouds and not keep the temperatures down at all. 42 in the city tonight. 30 still in the suburbs. but we're talking upper 30s in the suburbs under these mostly clear skies. i just kind of put in a token cloud there. and it looks like for tomorrow sunshine through the day. 61 degrees at noon. and the winds tomorrow will only be about 5, 6, 7 miles per hour. so it shouldn't be a big deal. and of course as we get into
5:51 pm
veteran's day on sunday, this is your fox5 accuweather 7-day forecast. and as we head on through the next several days it stays nice and mild to warm for the next three days. and then monday night a new system comes through and it will bring us some showers through the day on tuesday and that will cool us back down again. wednesday 54, thursday 55, friday 57. and again this will probably be one of the last really good weekends. and i know shawn has the list ready. >> honey-do, baby. >> i know. i always have a list. but it really is going to be a good weekend. >> cleaning out the bat cave. >> thanks, gary. now to the talk of the town on tmz. lindsay lohan officially pulls out of her 20/20 interview. gavery trough joins us live from l.a. a lot of people are asking why diddlingsy back out of this interview? >> i know. everybody wanted lindsay and
